One way to share links to networked files
Authored by: chleuasme on Mar 23, '09 02:02:16PM
To create .afploc files, i propose this Applescript :
set afploc_begin to "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC \"-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN\" \"\">
<plist version=\"1.0\">

set afploc_end to "</string>

set cmd_txt to (quoted form of afploc_begin) & "$afpurl" & (quoted form of afploc_end)

tell application "Finder"
	set elts to get selection
	repeat with elt in elts
		set f to POSIX path of (elt as string)
		set fn to name of elt
		set p to POSIX path of ((container of elt) as string)
		set afploc to quoted form of (p & fn & ".afploc")
		set s to text returned of (display dialog "Enter the server for " & f default answer "afp://")
		set afpurl to s & (do shell script "/bin/echo -n " & f & " | ruby -ruri -p -e '$_=URI.encode$_' | sed 's:^/Volumes::'")
		do shell script "afpurl=" & afpurl & "; echo " & cmd_txt & " > " & afploc
	end repeat
end tell
(again, use at your own risk, with same problems on files or folder with a name containing the character '/')

I don't know a way to obtain the afp server given a mount point, to avoid the dialog.
